With the release of Istio 1.5, the service mesh underwent a remarkable change from a collection of microservices to a single binary, or monolith. We got in touch with some of the Istio team and talked to Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM Lin Sun and IBM Distinguished Engineer Daniel Berg about the new update and what the future holds.
The first Linkerd release of the year has arrived—version 2.7 provides Vault and cert-manager integration, dashboard updates, breaking changes, bug fixes and more. Let’s take a closer look at what the latest version of the Kubernetes service mesh has to offer.
Service Meshes are currently a very popular topic in IT: Microservices architectures are growing continuously and with them the difficulty of keeping track. We spoke with Patrick Arnold, IT consultant at Pentasys AG, about service meshes such as Istio, Linkerd and solo.io and best practices when using them.
Kuma is a new universal open source control plane for service mesh and microservices. It is built upon Envoy and can operate natively across modern Kubernetes. With Kuma, the main goal is to reduce the code that has to be written and maintained to build reliable architectures. Read the introduction to Kuma to learn more about it and how it operates.
At Kubecon last week, Containous launched their new Traefik Ambassador Program in an effort to give contributors to the open source cloud-native edge router some recognition for their contributions. Community members are already expressing their enthusiasm for the new initiative. Let’s take a closer look.
Looking for a service mesh? A service mesh can help coordinate and monitor data and microservices communications across applications. Maesh is built on top of Traefik, an open source cloud-native edge router also known for its simplicity-by-design. This article explores its architecture, how it works, and how to install it.
Service meshes offer users a way to control different parts of an application and how they share data with one another. MuleSoft, an integration platform for SOA, SaaS, and APIs, announced its newest product, Anypoint Service Mesh. Check this new offering out, what some of its features are, as well as a few other service meshes available and some additional reading for learning more.
If service meshes are something you’d like to explore but you find the experience too challenging, SuperGloo is here to make things easier for you. The goal of this open-source project is to manage and orchestrate service meshes at scale; in short, it promises to simplify the installation, management, and operation of your service mesh.
A match made in heaven? If you’re wondering what the microservices in your Istio service mesh are doing, Kiali’s got you covered. This new project helps you visualize the service mesh topology, and offers visibility into features like circuit breakers, request rates and more. Have we mentioned it runs on OpenShift and Kubernetes? Let’s have a closer look.
